Charlie has done gymnastics since she was a little girl. She wanted to have a normal experience outside of gymnastics by going to a public school. Charlie tries to keep her secret of being a Olympic-hopeful gymnast but leading a double life is not easy.
I really liked how the main character was strong and worked hard to juggle everything that she wanted. I thought the book was well written and I looked forward to reading it. I didn’t like that she was lying to her friends to keep her secret.
